OTTUMWA — The criminal complaint filed in the attempted murder case against David Nordyke III contains little additional information beyond what authorities released. Nordyke is charged after authorities say he shot his father in Agency.
The shooting took place at 9:45 p.m. Sunday at Nordyke’s home in the 8900 block of Fox Hills Road. Both men lived in the same residence, court papers said. The documents also specify Nordyke used a .22 caliber rifle in the shooting.
Nordyke’s father, David Nordyke, Jr., was taken to Jefferson County Hospital and later airlifted to the University of Iowa Hospitals and Clinics for treatment.
Nordyke was ordered held on a $250,000 cash only bond following his initial appearance. The court also issued a no contact order. Should Nordyke post bond, the order allows him to return to the home to retrieve clothing or work-related items, though he must surrender any keys or other means of gaining access.
Court records do not yet list an attorney for Nordyke.
